“Medical Infrared Imaging – Principles and Practices”-

Mary Diakides, Joseph D. Bronzino, Donald R. Peterson

bookMIIThe evolution of technological advances in infrared sensor technology, image processing, “smart” algorithms, knowledge-based databases, and their overall system integration has resulted in new methods of research and use in medical infrared imaging. The development of infrared cameras with focal plane arrays no longer requiring cooling, added a new dimension to this modality. Medical Infrared Imaging: Principles and Practices covers new ideas, concepts, and technologies.

book4Rapid evolution of technical advances in infrared sensor technology, image processing, “smart” algorithms, databases, and system integration paves the way for new methods of research and use in medical infrared imaging. These breakthroughs permit easy-to-use, high-sensitivity imaging that can address key issues of diagnostic specificity and engender a new level of diagnostic standardization, thus enabling the even wider use of infrared imaging as a viable, non-invasive, lower-cost, safe and accessible first-line detection modality.






“Avoiding Breast Cancer”-

Joseph McWherter MD

book5Dr. McWherter reveals the steps that you can take to help avoid breast cancer, and how bio-identical hormone replacement can be used without increasing cancer risks. Explains how a special type of estrogen manufactured in the breast can kill breast cancer cells. Covers how iodine plays a major role in breast health; how detoxification rejuvenates the mind and body while protecting the breast; how thermography can be used in detecting precancerous changes long before they appear on mammograms.






“Rehabilitation Medicine and Thermography”-

Matthew H.M. Lee, MD / Jeffrey M. Cohen, MD

book6Rehabilitation Medicine and Thermography presents a comprehensive review of the expanding role of thermography in studying chronic pain and other rehabilitation conditions, as well as its clinical applications in the fields of arthritis, dermatology, neurology, sports medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, and legal medicine. Each chapter is written by medical experts and edited by Dr. Mathew H.M. Lee and Dr. Jeffrey M. Cohen of the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine at NYU School of Medicine. Dr. Lee, an international consultant and lecturer, is Medical Director, Rusk Institute and Chairman, Dept. of Rehabilitation Medicine.




“Building Your Private Practice”-

Lynn Grodzki

Building your private practiceBuilding Your Ideal Private Practice, a best-seller in its genre, is now fully revised after its original publication in 2000. Much has changed for therapists in private practice over the past fifteen years, including the widespread encroachment by insurance and managed care into the marketplace, the density of new therapists as over 600,000 therapists nation-wide try to stay viable, and the role of the Internet in marketing services. The revision of Building Your Ideal Private Practice is a comprehensive guide, updated with six new chapters and targeted for therapists at all stages of private practice development. It covers the essential how-to questions for those starting out in practice and explains the common pitfalls to avoid.




“12 Months To Your Ideal Private Practice”-

Lynn Grodzki

12 Months to your idealThis book, based in part on Lynn Grodzki’s book Building Your Ideal Private Practice, is a year-long, progressive practice-building program offering therapists an abundance of information, ideas, and strategies for working successfully in private practice. Whereas Building Your Ideal Private Practice was a comprehensive guide to practice building, this workbook is a month-by-month coaching program, giving readers the experience of being coached for a year.

“Topics in Medical Image Processing and Computational Vision”

Joao Manuel R.S. Tavares, Renato Natal Jorge

topics-in-medicalDifferent applications are addressed and described throughout the book, comprising: Object Recognition and Tracking, Facial Expression Recognition, Image Database, Plant Disease Classification, Video Understanding and Management, Image Processing, Image Segmentation, Bio-structure Modelling and Simulation, Medical Imaging, Image Classification, Medical Diagnosis, Urban Areas Classification, Land Map Generation.







“Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasonics and Thermography”-

Sol Nudelman, D. D. Patton

The material in this volume was prepared and collected over the past four years with the growing realization that a technical revolution was in progress for diagnostic medicine. It became clear that for the wide variety of imaging instruments and methods finding their way into applications for research and clinical medicine, there was a scarcity of reference and text books for the scientist and engineer beginning in the field. Thus what began as a relatively small project for a single volume has grown into certainly two and probably three volumes to adequately cover the field.





“Application of Infrared Thermography in Sports Science”-

Jose Ignacio Priego Quesada

This book addresses the application of infrared thermography in sports, examining the main benefits of this non-invasive, non-radiating and low-cost technique. Aspects covered include the detection of injuries in sports medicine, the assessment of sports performance due to the existing link between physical fitness and thermoregulation…






“Innovative Research in Thermal Imaging for Biology and Medicine”-

Ricardo Vardasca, Joaquim Gabriel

“This book of research studies embraces a wide biological field, but provides useful reference data for many researchers entering this area. It demonstrates that temperature research in medicine now has a further dimension. Non-invasive imaging combined with the wide range of computing and processing make this technology more cost effective than at any time”






“Infrared Imaging: A Casebook in Clinical Medicine”

Francis Ring, Anna Jung, Janusz Zuber

“Infrared thermal imaging is a rapid and non-invasive procedure for mapping skin temperature distribution of the human body. Advanced software and high-resolution infrared detectors has allowed for a renaissance in the use of infrared thermal imaging or thermography in medical research and practice. This book is recommended reading for practicing and training radiographers, medical physicists and clinicians.”
